Missing Teeth & Dental Implants

Implant with Crown

from £1450

Our principal dentist Roman has a special interest in dental implants, having gained a Master's Degree in Dental Implantology from The University of Manchester.

Single Dental Implant

Have you lost all or some of your natural teeth? Bridges, dentures and flexible dentures are not the only solution, thanks to advances in modern dentistry. Have you heard of dental implants? Implant dentistry offers a clinically proven and safe solution to getting a great smile back and being able to bite and chew with confidence. This is how they work:

 

  1. Dental implants are small metal screws that are placed in the jaw in place of a missing tooth.

  2. Once established, crowns, bridges and dentures can be fixed onto the implants, creating a natural-looking and stable restoration.

Life Benefits

  • When you lose your natural teeth, your jaw bone and surrounding tissues start to resorb or disappear over time. When implants are placed in the jaw, it stimulates the remaining bone to grow and mesh around the metal, along with tiny blood vessels, preventing bone loss.

  • Retained bone structure prevents the face from acquiring a ‘sunken’ look. 

  • Implants help restore function so you can eat, chew and bite as usual.

  • Implants are a natural-looking way to replace missing teeth.

Implant Bridge

If you have several teeth next to each other that are missing, a good solution is a bridge supported by dental implants.

 

Here is how it works: 

  1. Two or more dental implants are inserted into the jaw and used to support the bridge which replaces missing teeth and closes the gaps.

  2. Bridges are usually made of a metal base, which gives them a solid structure and covered with porcelain to make it look like real teeth.

  3. A bridge makes chewing and eating easier because they are fixed and can’t come out.

 

Once you have a bridge fitted, you will have to take extra care during your daily hygiene regime to ensure it stays plaque free and does not cause bad breath.

Life Benefits

  • A sturdy way to restore several teeth in a row.

  • Beautiful, natural-looking restoration.

  • Restores the ability to chew and eat as before.

  • Eliminates the necessity for removable denture.

 

Same Day Teeth All-on-4

If your dentures are becoming uncomfortable and tiring, we have a fast, efficient and comfortable solution that will give you a second chance at the feeling of a mouth full of stable, permanent teeth.


All-on-4 is a revolutionary and highly advanced new method that allows a full mouth of new teeth to rest with complete, proven stability on only four implants.

 

Here’s what it involves:

 

  1. State-of-the-art technologies such as CT Scanners are used to plot the location of just four implants in your jaw.

  2. These implants form a sturdy base for a full arch of dentures to be secured on top of.

  3. The dentures will then be permanent. They look and function just like natural teeth.

  4. You walk out on the same day with a beautiful, natural, functional smile!

  5. At our practice, we understand the impact a smile can have. We would never send you out without a complete smile. That’s why, usually, we will fit you with a temporary bridge (which looks identical to your natural teeth and functions just as well) before we add your permanent denture six months later.


We also offer sedation options for nervous patients. Dentistry doesn’t have to be frightening! With modern sedatives, many patients will hardly know they’ve been in surgery.

Life Benefits

  • Your perfect smile will enhance your confidence.

  • No need to hold back your laughter.

  • No need to restrict your choice of foods. 

 

Implant Denture

If you are wearing full dentures which are slipping and tend to move out of their place, you may want to consider implant dentures.

A full denture held in place by dental implants is called an implants retained overdenture and is designed to prevent denture movement and slipping during chewing. This type of removable restoration is usually retained by 2 implants on the lower jaw or 4 implants on the upper jaw.

When in place, your implant denture will not detach, you can safely eat, speak and smile during the day and you’ll only have to remove them for cleaning.

 

Sinus Lift

If you have lost one or more teeth at the back of your upper jaw, and the bone have receded, it could make it difficult to undergo implant treatment. A sinus lift procedure would add a missing amount of bone and provide sufficient support for dental implants.

  1. Prior to the procedure, a number of tests will be run to ensure the suitability of the sinuses, which include a CT scan.

  2. Similarly to a bone graft procedure, there are several options for the new bone material. Your dentist will advise which will be best for you.

  3.  The sinus lift procedure is usually performed by the dentist under local anaesthetic.

  4. In many cases sinus lift and implant placement can be performed simultaneously.

  5. If only very limited amount of bone is available, the sinus lift has to be performed as a separate procedure. Then after a period of time, the site will be healed and ready for implants.

A sinus lift is a safe and clinically proven procedure and when completed with expertise and care it will provide the best, most stable base for life changing implant surgery. As with any surgical procedure, at our practice we ensure that you understand all aftercare instructions and we will check back with you regularly to ensure that the healing is going smoothly.

Life Benefits

  • A second chance at the comfort and security of dental implants.

  • Implants help restore function so you can eat, chew and bite as usual.

  • A long-term investment in your health and wellbeing.

 

Bone Graft

Those who have had a traumatic tooth extraction or had a missing tooth for a long time are likely to have suffered bone loss. This does not mean you are unable to receive dental implants; you can still have successful implant surgery through a clinically proven procedure called bone grafting.

  1. There are several options for the new bone material. Your dentist will advise which will be best for you. In some cases, synthetic material may be the best option.

  2. In many cases bone grafting and implant placement can be performed simultaneously. Our dentist will insert this bone expertly into your jaw.

  3. The new bone will mesh seamlessly into the surrounding tissue over a period of time. Once healed, the implant site will be as strong as natural bone.


We know that just like any surgical procedure, a bone graft can be daunting. We are more than happy to talk you through your procedure step by step and work out the best arrangement for you. We’ll always make sure you’re fully aware of every option and comfortable with your informed decisions before moving forward.

Life Benefits

  • A second chance at the comfort and security of dental implants.

  • A long-term investment in your health and wellbeing.
